CAVEAT EMPTOR: While it is certainly worth skimming through the

has changed in that time that makes plenty of the details described
in the book inaccurate, obsolete or just plain wrong.

I don't know that I ever would have started using autotools without the autobook. Coming to it for the first time can be hugely confusing, and it smoothed out a lot of bumps for me. Any chance of a new version of the book for the next generation of newbies?
